I am very privileged and proud to be able to call The Montague my second home for the last 20 years. I am blessed to work with such a long-standing, committed team, each one of whom is passionate about delivering genuine hospitality and superb service. We take the time to know our guests, ensuring that each guest’s stay is personalised, weaving in memorable experiences that remain with you long after your visit ends. My team and I look forward to warmly welcoming you to The Montague very soon.
At The Montague we like to make things magical and fun for our guests and therefore we have an array of experiences available for different occasions. Whatever the occasion, it would be my pleasure to tailor it to your needs so that your visit is not just a night out but becomes a treasured memory!
I originally worked at The Milestone Hotel in various departments which is also part of the Red Carnation Hotel family. In February 2016, I joined The Montague on the Gardens as Deputy General Manager. It is my dedicated team's goal to ensure that all of our guests receive the very warmest welcome to the hotel and that their stay is perfect. Our motto is 'No request is too large, no detail is too small.'
We have a wealth of different dining options to offer you at The Montague. Many of my dishes are inspired by our President and Founder of Red Carnation Hotels, Mrs Beatrice Tollman, whose philosophy is to offer the very best in delicious comfort food. When designing my menus, I particularly focus on seasonal, sustainable produce that is sourced locally. If you have any special dietary requirements, I will of course be happy to look after this request.
As the Head Concierge I truly love looking after our guests. It is my role to organise your private itinerary whilst you are staying with us, to book you the best seats in the theatre and to get you a table in those very difficult to book restaurants. My team and I continue to seek out all that London has to offer, from the dazzlingly new to the quintessentially traditional, so we can offer you the very best advice when putting together your itinerary.
If you require a stay in London on business, I am happy to discuss preferential corporate rates that include several great benefits. In this ever-evolving world it is vital that we offer our guests a selection of unique experiences, which are not readily available to the general public. Due to the strength of the partnerships that we have formed with key institutions here in Bloomsbury, we are able to access exclusive experiences which we can offer you.
I am delighted to lead a wonderful team in the UK, taking care of our guests' reservations. Let us know whether you will be celebrating your honeymoon, birthday, or wedding. It would be our pleasure to oversee your bedroom allocation and put in a special request prior to your arrival. We can also organise any additional extras you may like such as chocolates, champagne and strawberries, which would be waiting for you upon arrival. We will ensure that your stay will be one you fondly remember.
I will personally oversee that the best possible room is allocated to you and if you are celebrating a special occasion, I can suggest several options, including a surprise cake, chocolates or flowers, to make the celebration even more memorable. It is my pleasure to take the worry out of planning the details of your visit, ensuring all your preferences are organised prior to your arrival, so that you can relax and enjoy your time with us!
As the Conference and Events Sales Manager at The Montague, I am honoured and delighted to be part of such a creative and passionate team. Together, we organise and execute the most versatile events and ensure that the guests always have the most memorable experience with us. Specialising in a range of events from intimate celebrations to large corporate parties, there is no request too large, no detail too small.
As Chief Engineer it is my role to ensure that everything is in perfect condition during your stay with us. I am also on hand to assist with any technical matters such as Wi-Fi connectivity, our Sky Television system, gaming consoles for the children or our climate control system.
